US stocks steady after plunge but caution still reigns

NEW YORK — Stocks around the world remained stuck in the spin cycle Thursday, as worries about a possible recession collided with hopes that the strongest part of the U.S. economy — shoppers spending at stores and online — can keep going.The S&P 500 flipped between modest gains and losses in morning trading, a day after it plunged to one of its worst losses of the year after the bond market sent out a fairly reliable warning signal of recession. Stocks from Tokyo to London, meanwhile, sank after China said it would take “necessary countermeasures” if President Donald Trump follows through on a threat to impose tariffs on more than $100 billion of Chinese goods on Sept. 1.The U.S. bond market, which has been among the loudest and earliest to cry out warnings about weaker economic growth and inflation, also continued to show concern as yields fell.In the U.S., Walmart shares surged 5% and helped to steady the market after it said it made a bigger profit in the last three months than Wall Street expected, thanks in part to strong online sales of groceries. A separate government report also showed that retail sales were stronger than economists expected last month.The S&P was up 0.3%, as of 9:56 a.m. Eastern time, after flipping between a loss of 0.2% and a gain of 0.5%. A day earlier, it plunged nearly 3%.The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 92 points, or 0.4%, to 25,572, and the Nasdaq composite gained 0.2%.Consumer spending makes up the bulk of the U.S. economy, and shoppers have been carrying the economy recently amid worries that businesses will pull back on their spending due to all the uncertainty created by the Trump administration’s trade war with China. Other economies are slowing as the trade war is doing damage to manufacturers around the world.Those concerns helped drive the yield on the 10-year Treasury to 1.56% Thursday, down from 1.58% late Wednesday and from more than 3% late last year. The 10-year yield has sunk so much that it dropped below the yield of the two-year Treasury Wednesday, a rare occurrence and one that has historically suggested a recession may be a year or two away.The 30-year Treasury yield fell to 2.01% from 2.02% and earlier dropped below 2% to a record low, a sign of concern among investors. When worried about weaker economic growth and inflation, they tend to pile into Treasurys, which pushes up their prices and in turn pushes down yields.The trade war isn’t the only worry for investors. The United Kingdom’s pending exit from the European Union, political unrest in Hong Kong and a totally separate trade war between South Korea and Japan are all adding to the gloom.“The countdown to a recession has just started,” said Hussein Sayed, Chief Market Strategist at FXTM.The worries have pulled the S&P 500 down 4.4% so far this month, while other markets are down even more sharply. The S&P 500, though, remains within 6% of its record set late last month.“The fact is that no one actually knows what is next for the markets,” said Fiona Cincotta, senior market analyst at City Index. “However, the signs flashing from the markets are not great.”In Europe, Germany’s DAX sank 1.1%, while France’s CAC 40 lost 0.7%. The FTSE 100 in London dropped 1.4%.Japan’s Nikkei 225 fell 1.2%, and the Hang Seng in Hong Kong rose 0.8%.Commodity prices, which have been swinging sharply on worries that a weaker global economy will dent demand, were lower. Benchmark U.S. crude fell 93 cents, or 1.7%, to $54.30 per barrel. Brent crude, the international standard, lost $1.49, or 2.5%, to $57.99Stan Choe, The Associated Press read more

Slow start turns into blowout for Ohio State Buckeyes beat Tulsa 483

OSU junior Jalyn Holmes embraces a teammate after a play against Tulsa on Sept. 10, 2016. OSU won 48-3. Credit: Alexa Mavrogianis | Photo EditorOhio State football fans came into Saturday’s matchup against Tulsa with high hopes after the team’s drubbing of Bowling Green last week. Buckeye fans saw a much different game in the first half from their team against the Golden Hurricane, but OSU was too much to handle in the second half, winning 48-3.Things could not have started better for the Buckeyes, as the first pass from Tulsa quarterback Dane Evans was tipped at the line, and intercepted by redshirt sophomore cornerback Marshon Lattimore.A short field did not help OSU find the endzone early. After two failed run plays, a pass from redshirt junior J.T. Barrett intended for redshirt sophomore Noah Brown was swatted away, forcing the Buckeyes to trot out their field goal unit.After senior kicker Tyler Durbin gave OSU a 3-0 lead, the game fell into a defensive stalemate. Sloppy offensive play and little movement by either team’s offensive units kept things close throughout the first quarter.“The offensive line gets a lot of praise around,” OSU coach Urban Meyer said. “Also, when things aren’t going well, it’s probably because we’re not playing up to our expectation level.”Coming off a stellar game against San Jose State, Tulsa junior running back D’Angelo Brewer found wide-open running lanes for much of the first half, slashing through the Buckeyes front seven for 47 first-half yards.The absence of redshirt junior Tracy Sprinkle was apparent for the Buckeyes. A distinct lack of push along the defensive line allowed Evans to remain in the pocket and create space for Brewer to pick up multiple first downs.“The loss of Tracy Sprinkle…it set us back a bit because he’s such a great leader and a great player,” OSU redshirt sophomore defensive end Sam Hubbard said. “These young guys had a good day and stepped up.”Hubbard also said he was pleased with the play of redshirt freshman Davon Hamilton and redshirt freshman Dre’Mont Jones, who are filling in for the injured Sprinkle. Combined, the two players picked up three tackles.OSU redshirt junior quarterback J.T. Barrett struggled to connect with receivers, completing eight passes on 14 attempts and only racking up 69 yards. His biggest target of the first half, redshirt sophomore Terry McLaurin, had a 16-yard catch, which was the longest reception of the first half.Without much of an offensive attack, the Silver Bullets stepped up in a big way, picking off Evans three times in the first half, two of which were returned for touchdowns.Redshirt sophomore safety Malik Hooker’s interception was good enough for a 26-yard return, putting the Buckeyes up 13-3.Redshirt sophomore cornerback Marshon Lattimore picked off two first half passes, returning one all the way back for a score with less than a minute left in the half.“This was my first pick six ever; I was excited to just get out there,” Lattimore said. “I had some blockers in front of me, so they really helped me out, too.”A delay for inclement weather lasted from 5:25 p.m. until 6:35 p.m., as lightning was spotted multiple times near the stadium during the pause in play. The halftime show was cancelled, and many OSU fans left the stadium during the hour-long storm.However, the Buckeyes were a different team in the second half, leaning heavily on the legs of junior H-back Curtis Samuel.On the initial drive of the second half, Samuel busted off a few double-digit yardage runs, and set a key block that opened a lane for Barrett to break the goal line. The touchdown marked Barrett’s second rushing touchdown of the season.The hour-long break seemed to create a spark for OSU on both sides of the ball, with the Buckeyes preventing Tulsa from scoring during the second half. Evans threw his fourth interception on the day, and once again failed to find paydirt.Opposing offenses have struggled against OSU so far this season, with the Buckeyes defense having yet to surrender a touchdown to another team’s offense.Weber was the leading rusher of the day for OSU, carrying the ball 17 times for 92 yards and a touchdown. Barrett finished the day with a statline of 14 for 22 and 149 yards, with no passing touchdowns and two rushing scores.“I thought the best thing he did is he hit the hole hard, he ran hard, but he also hung on that ball,” Meyer said. “It’s night and day compared to who he was a year ago.”Samuel came back to Earth a bit after racking up 261 all-purpose yards last Saturday, failing to find the endzone after scoring three times against Bowling Green. He still managed to gain 140 total yards, much of which came in the second half.Senior H-back Dontre Wilson picked up a late touchdown run, which was his first rushing touchdown of the year.The wide receiver’s play for OSU was heavily criticized by Meyer last week, and there was little in terms of improvement by the unit. Wideouts for the Buckeyes combined for five receptions, 49 yards and no scores.The Buckeyes face a tough test next week in Norman, Oklahoma, against the Sooners. 14th-ranked Oklahoma lost in its first week against then-No. 15 Houston, taking a hit to its ranking. Both OSU and Oklahoma will be looking for a win to remain prominent in the national picture.The game is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. at Memorial Stadium next Saturday.This article has been amended by quotes following the post-game conference. read more

Paedophile caught with 137000 indecent images of children spared jail so he

first_imgArrowsmith was ordered to pay £250 costs and carry out 160 hours of unpaid work as well as being made the subject of a curfew restricting him from leaving his house between 7pm and 5am.He is also banned from working with children and was ordered to sign the sex offenders register.The court heard police found 400 videos in Category A, which is the worst, with another 255 films in Category B and 186 films and 851 images in Category C.Overall there were 1,692 movies and images ranging from Category A to C as well as the 4,336 videos and 137,000 images that remained uncategorised.After he was arrested Arrowsmith admitted to viewing and downloading indecent images of children for “four or so years”.But he told police officers he had never distributed or made any images or videos.Digby Johnson, defending, told the court Arrowsmith and his wife, who was not present in court, were trying for children and wanted to start a family. A paedophile who was found with more than 137,000 indecent images of children has been spared jail because he wants to start a family.Richard Arrowsmith faced up to five years in prison but was handed a suspended sentence after telling a judge he wanted to become a father.The 41-year-old was arrested after police received a tip-off in February that an IP address linked to his Sky account was used to download the pictures.Officers executed a warrant at his home and seized a computer, external hard drive, laptop, mobile phone and USB sticks on April 19 this year.A court heard a police computerised scanning system flagged up at least 10,000 indecent images and videos on the devices. But a large number could not be categorised due to the sheer amount of movies and pictures, including 4,336 videos and 137,000 images.Arrowsmith, of Church Gresley, Derbyshire, pleaded guilty to possessing indecent images and videos of children when he appeared at Derby Crown Court on Wednesday.But he was spared jail after a judge heard he was hoping to start a family with his wife who was still supporting him.Sentencing Arrowsmith to 10 months in prison, suspended for two years, Recorder Martin Butterworth, said: “You are 41-years-old, with no previous convictions and you pleaded guilty at the earliest opportunity.”There are three charges against you in relation to the possession of indecent images of children.”I am taking into consideration your previous good character, you have a wife who supports you, a steady employment and your hopes to start a family in the near future.”These are not victimless crimes, they encourage serious abuse of sometimes very young children. You were less than honest about the nature of the images.” These are not victimless crimes, they encourage serious abuse of sometimes very young childrenRecorder Martin Butterworthcenter_img I am taking into consideration your previous good character, you have a wife who supports you, a steady employment and your hopes to start a family in the near futureRecorder Martin Butterworth Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

NASAs Shuttle Program successor rocket will travel to Mars and beyond

first_imgNASA’s Shuttle Program came to an end when Atlantis flew its last mission in July. After months of debate, NASA finally unveiled the successor to the Shuttle Program called the Space Launch System. According to NASA, the “advanced heavy-lift launch vehicle” will allow for human space exploration beyond Earth’s orbit and deep into space.Over the next two decades, the SLS will take U.S. astronauts on missions to Mars and to near-Earth asteroids. The SLS program will cost about $35 billion and will start test launching in six years. That may seem like a long time to wait, but that’s only the test flights. The first crewed flight is actually estimated to take off in 2021, and the Mars mission will happen sometime in the 2030s.It looks like NASA’s going with the “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” model by incorporating “technological investments” from the Space Shuttle program and the Constellation program. NASA knows these technologies are proven to work, and by not needing to put the time and energy into coming up with and manufacturing new technologies, it will definitely help keep the development and operations costs of the program down. For the initial launch in 2017, the SLS will use the same solid booster rockets that were use for Shuttle missions. However, NASA said it would hold a design contest that would replace these rockets with new rockets for the 2021 manned launch.The SLS will use a liquid hydrogen and liquid oxygen propulsion system which will include RS-25D/E from the Space Shuttle program for the core launch stage and the J-2 X engine for the upper stage. The rocket boosters mentioned above will allow the SLS to carry 70 metric tons at its first launch, but NASA is aiming to get the SLS to carry 130 metric tons in the future.Designed to carry the Orion Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle, as well as important cargo, equipment, and science experiments, the SLS will also be backup for commercial and international transportation to the International Space Station. It’s been over 40 years since NASA has had an “exploration-class vehicle” flying around in space. The Saturn V brought U.S. astronauts to the moon and was used by NASA’s Apollo and Skylab Programs from 1967 until 1973, so the SLS is a happy addition to NASA’s line of spacecrafts.NASA said the SLS’s ability to travel far out of our solar system will allow us to explore and learn how our solar system formed, where the water and organics of Earth originated, and how life may be able to survive in places outside of our atmosphere.via NASAlast_img read more

In his mid-twenties, he then decides to try and return home.What the critics say“Like its hero, Lion often finds itself torn between two worlds. Garth Davis’ film is working from true source material: Saroo Brierley was separated from his family as a child in India and adopted by an Australian couple; years later, he discovered his birthplace using Google Earth. ” – AV Club“The enormous pain of his loss is sometimes mitigated by the excitement of discovery. You fear for him, and also root for him, and mostly you are captivated by his story and the sophisticated simplicity of its telling.” – NY Times PLANNING ON HEADING out to the cinema this weekend?There are a few movies out this week, but which is a must-watch, and are there any you should avoid?We take a look.Jackie Source: FoxSearchlight/YouTubeWhat we knowNatalie Portman is getting much kudos for playing Jackie Onassis in this portrait of her life in the days in the aftermath of the killing.What the critics say“This is a movie broadly about Jacqueline Kennedy in the wake of her husband’s assassination, but it’s also about her efforts to shape the country’s perception of the event amid her deep trauma, and to leave out the uglier parts. Pablo Larrain’s new film is a wonderful subversion of one of Hollywood’s favorite genres: an illustration of public life that understands its inherent artifice.” – The Atlantic“Apart from that voice, Portman is so damn smart.

Archbishop Stylianos wishes his parish Xristos Anesti

first_imgBrother Concelebrants and Beloved Children in the Lord, Christ is Risen!Having crossed the sea of Holy and Great Lent once again this year, we are all invited, as illumined children of the Church, to receive Christ from the tomb as the Bridegroom.No matter how great the powers of evil in the world, which darken and tarnish the human person, we are not permitted to show weakness of faith before life itself, since in finality life is redeemed by the Giver of life. The Paschal lamb of God awaits those who have fasted and those who have not, provided that the lethargic receive the Supper as do the pious.Humanity and the world are the inheritance of God, which the power of death cannot destroy. Whenever we feel that our powers may be failing us in our everyday struggle, we need to remember that beyond all human strength, the power of God remains inexhaustible.In the language of our ancestors, in the immortal epics of Homer, the words ‘light’ and ‘human person’ are synonymous words. Let us therefore believe, sisters and brothers, in the Light. Let us strive for the Light, so that our works might be accomplished in Light.Come receive the light from the light which never sets! Peace be with you! Peace be with all!To Him belong glory and power to the ages of ages.

S Koreas Moon meets Pompeo says world has escaped nuclear war threat

first_imgUS secretary of state Mike Pompeo shakes hands with Japan`s foreign minister Taro Kono during a bilateral meeting at a hotel in Seoul, South Korea on 14 June 2018. Photo: ReutersSouth Korean president Moon Jae-In said on Thursday the world had escaped the threat of war after this week’s Singapore summit, echoing US president Donald Trump’s upbeat assessment of his meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.Trump and Kim issued a joint statement after their historic meeting that reaffirmed the North’s commitment to “work toward complete denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula”, an end to joint US-South Korean military exercises and gave US guarantees of security to North Korea.”There have been many analyses on the outcome of the summit but I think what’s most important was that the people of the world, including those in the United States, Japan and Koreans, have all been able to escape the threat of war, nuclear weapons and missiles,” Moon told US secretary of state Mike Pompeo ahead of a meeting between the two in Seoul. The summit statement provided no details on when Pyongyang would give up its nuclear weapons programme or how the dismantling might be verified.Sceptics of how much the meeting achieved pointed to the North Korean leadership’s long-held view that nuclear weapons are a bulwark against what it fears are US plans to overthrow it and unite the Korean peninsula.”I am confident that we took a very good, significant step in Singapore,” Pompeo told Moon on Thursday ahead of a trilateral meeting including Japanese foreign minister Taro Kono.Pompeo insisted after the meeting that Pyongyang was committed to giving up its nuclear arsenal but said it would “be a process, not an easy one”.Kim Jong Un understood getting rid of his nuclear arsenal needed to be done quickly and there would only be relief from stringent UN sanctions on North Korea after its “complete denuclearisation”, Pompeo said.”EVERYBODY MUCH SAFER”The United States has long insisted on complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearisation by North Korea but, in the summit statement, North Korea committed only to the “complete denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula”, phrasing it has used in the past.Pompeo said a day earlier he would like to accomplish major nuclear disarmament in North Korea within Trump’s current term.”Absolutely … you used the term major, major disarmament, something like that? We’re hopeful that we can achieve that in the 2-1/2 years,” he said.US secretary of state Mike Pompeo, South Korean foreign minister Kang Kyung-wha and Japan`s Foreign Minister Taro Kono attend a joint news conference at the foreign ministry in Seoul, South Korea on 14 June 2018. Photo: ReutersPompeo, who is charged by Trump with leading follow-on negotiations, bristled at a question about why the words “verifiable” and “irreversible” were not used in the summit joint statement in the context of denuclearisation.”It’s in the statement. You’re just wrong about that … Because complete encompasses verifiable and irreversible. I suppose you could argue semantics, but let me assure you that it’s in the document,” Pompeo said on Wednesday.Trump returned to the United States on Wednesday and took to Twitter to hail the meeting, the first between a sitting US president and a North Korean leader, as a major win for American security.”Everybody can now feel much safer than the day I took office,” Trump tweeted. “There is no longer a nuclear threat from North Korea. Meeting with Kim Jong Un was an interesting and very positive experience. North Korea has great potential for the future!” Democratic critics in the United States said the agreement was short on detail and the Republican president had made too many concessions to Kim, whose country is under UN sanctions for its nuclear and weapons programmes and is widely condemned for human rights abuses.MAINTAIN THE READINESSTokyo has reacted with concern at Trump’s plans to cancel military exercises with South Korea, saying such drills are vital for East Asian security.Two North Korean missiles flew over Japan last year as Pyongyang made rapid advances in its programme to develop a missile capable of striking the US mainland with a nuclear warhead.Tokyo is working on arranging a meeting between Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and Kim Jong Un, with one possibility including the premier’s visit to Pyongyang around August, the Yomiuri newspaper reported.A government source familiar with the matter told Reuters that Japanese officials planned to discuss the summit meeting with North Korean officials at an international conference on Northeast Asian security to be held in Mongolia on Thursday and Friday.Despite Trump and Moon’s assertions about the North Korean nuclear threat being over, a senior US official responsible for studying the North Korean military said the US intelligence assessment of the nuclear and other military threat posed by North Korea to US and allied forces in Asia and the northwest Pacific remained unchanged.US officials said it was unclear what types of training involving US and South Korean troops might cross into Trump’s now forbidden zone of “war games”. But big, joint US-South Korean exercises appeared off-limits under the new guidance.”Make no mistake, we are going to maintain the readiness of our forces in South Korea,” said one US official, speaking on condition of anonymity. The official acknowledged, however, it was still not certain how that was going to happen.The United States maintains about 28,500 soldiers in South Korea, which remains in a technical state of war with the North after the 1950-53 Korean War ended in a truce rather than a peace treaty.last_img

February 3, 2009 – SonoSite Inc. said its new SonoGT Global Target technology is now available on its mountable S Series ultrasound tools. The new performance platform delivers enhanced color flow sensitivity, wireless connectivity, including a remote control for hands-free system control and workflow integration for multiple point-of-care application markets.First introduced for SonoSite’s M-Turbo systems in October 2008, SonoSite now brings the SonoGT engine to reportedly effectively transform the S Series product line into the S-Turbo Series. SonoSite plans to begin customer shipments of the new S Series systems with SonoGT technology in February. Customers can separately purchase SonoGT technology and upgrade existing S Series systems via an easy software download from a USB thumb drive. The SonoGT technology platform adds the following capabilities to the S Series product line:ColorHD Technology – A proprietary, color Doppler algorithm that harnesses the power of the S Series system’s digital signal processor to increase color, sensitivity and frame rates. SonoRemote Control – A new tool enabled by the SonoGT technology platform untethers the clinician from the ultrasound system during procedures to increase ergonomic comfort to perform more easily in sterile field procedures SonoRoam Technology – Using 802.11b/g technology, SonoRoam technology enables wireless image transfer from the S Series system to a PACS system via DICOM and to a personal computer via SonoSite’s SiteLink so that clinicians can quickly retrieve the information from any location.

In a statement, hospital president Mariella Enoc said using the Vatican’s helipad will greatly reduce transport time, “contributing in many cases to saving the lives of children.”Enoc said a key player in the deal was Domenico Giani, the pope’s chief bodyguard, who is known for the gentle way he holds children up to the pope to be kissed whenever Francis is out in public.Francis was “overjoyed” by the agreement, the statement said.Francis rarely uses the helipad, which is located in the Vatican gardens. Previous popes would frequently fly by helicopter to go back and forth from the papal summer residence in Castel Gandolfo.

ENI drillship at standstill north says will not accept activities in Block

first_imgCYPRUS was maintaining an open line of communication with Italy on Saturday after energy giant ENI’s drillship Saipem 12000 was given instructions to stay put overnight while on its way to a drill site in Block 3 of the island’s exclusive economic zone (EEZ) due to harassment by Turkish warships.Meanwhile the Turkish Cypriot ‘foreign ministry’ said it would not accept the extension of ENI’s activities into Block 3, which it claims for the ‘TRNC’ and accused the Greek Cypriots of raising tensions in the region.The Saipem was still at a complete standstill at the time of going to press on Saturday according to marinetraffic.com, a live ship-monitoring website. Various reports said there were anything from three to six Turkish warships in close proximity to the platform.In the meantime, it is understood that in addition to Nicosia and Rome working to resolve the issue, other diplomatic back channels have been opened with the EU and US.The Saipem 12000, which stopped some 15 nautical miles from its target location within Block 3, named Soupia or Cuttlefish, was some 70km off the coast of Cape Greco, on the southeastern corner of the island. The drillship had travelled from Block 6 of the south-west coast on Friday a day after ENI announced promising gas finds within that block, named Calypso.Foreign Minister Ioanns Kasoulides told public broadcaster Cybc on Saturday that the Turkish vessels that had harassed Saipem 1200 had forced the captain to manoeuvre out of their way. According to reports the Turkish vessels ordered the drillship to change course.Turkey is laying claim to parts of various blocks in Cyprus’ EEZ saying the areas in question form part of its continental shelf. The claim includes part of Blocks 1, 4, 5, 6 and 7.Turkish Cypriots signed a ‘Continental Shelf Delimitation Agreement’ with Turkey in September 2011. This ‘agreement’ states that it has been signed in line with international law and with respect to the principle of equity, though the ‘TRNC’ is not recognised internationally. It is on this basis that Turkish Cypriots declared an ‘EEZ’ which in effect claims that half of Cyprus’ EEZ belongs to them, including blocks 1,2,3,8,9,12 and 13.Kasoulides sad the ENI drillship remained in the same spot overnight on Friday and that the Turkish ships were still conducting illegal exercises in the Cypriot EEZ on Saturday. New reports later said the Saipem would reach the Soupia field later in the night but it was still stationary at 10pm.“Italy’s and Cyprus’ foreign ministries are in constant contact,” Kasoulides said, adding that the government was also in contact with ENI’s main offices in Rome about the situation.He added that when the harassment began, ENI had told the captain of the Saipem not to turn back and to stay in place to await further instructions as to when they could move towards the drill site. The solution to the issue would come from Rome and the Italian government, the outgoing foreign minister said.Kasoulides said the more Turkey acted this way, the “more it leaves itself exposed” internationally.  He also believes such incidents would probably continue. “In many countries in the world where oil exploration is being carried out, such incidents happen often,” he said.He added that he was certain the Italian government would protect its interests.On Friday, citing government sources, CyBC said that similar tactics had been carried out in the past, but Friday’s harassment had been stepped up a notch with three vessels circling the Saipem.A statement from the Turkish Cypriot ‘foreign ministry’ in the north on Saturday said they would not accept the extension of ENI’s activities into Block 3.“On our part, it is an action that is unacceptable.  Despite all our warnings, it seems the Greek Cypriot leadership insists on increasing the tension in the area,” the statement said.It added that measures were taken by the Greek Cypriot side that did not take into account the rights of the Turkish Cypriots, and that as the ‘TRNC’ they would not hesitate to take such actions [as were deemed necessary] in co-operation with the Republic of Turkey.According to the statement, the Greek Cypriots have ignored all the warnings and appeals of the Turkish Cypriot side to co-operate on the issue.Despite the fact that the wealth could be used as a method of co-operation between both sides in Cyprus, and others in the area, the ‘foreign affairs ministry’ noted, “the Greek Cypriot leadership has created the fait accompli it wanted, and has turned the natural wealth into a threat and source of tension in the area.”It added that the Turkish Cypriot proposals had been constructive as far as the fair distribution of the natural wealth was concerned and that those proposals were the only reason the Greek Cypriot side was against cooperating.“With its stance, the Greek Cypriot side has caused damage not only to the natural gas issue, but to the Cyprus issue as well,” the statement said. “The Greek Cypriot side has confirmed with their stance on the energy issue that they are not ready to share governance or wealth with the Turkish Cypriots.”It said that taking into account ‘international agreements’ signed in the past, the ‘foreign affairs ministry’ would take more concrete steps soon.On February 6 Turkish authorities issued a notice to mariners (FA78-0198), reserving for ‘military training’ a vast area encompassing virtually the whole of the island’s southern waters.The reserved area covers Cyprus’ block 3 and the Turkish Navtex will be in force on February 18 – at the same time that the drillship leased by ENI was to begin operating in the area.In response, Cyprus issued its own Navtex (NR 074/18) advising seafarers that the Turkish notice constitutes ‘unauthorised and illegal activity in the exclusive economic zone, the continental shelf and the search and rescue region of the Republic of Cyprus’.“This action is illegal, constitutes a violation of international law, affects maritime safety procedures and is also a criminal offence under the laws of the Republic of Cyprus.”In turn, Turkey issued a new Navtex (0202/18) in a bid to countermand the Cypriot one.It read: “The ‘Cyprus’ mentioned in Larnaca Navwarn NR 074/18 is not the original partnership state established in 1960.” You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoYahoo SearchThese SUVs Are The Cream Of The Crop.
